alan, i appreciate your input and humor. i have an avid interest in cosmology.. have for years. i dont entirely follow the mathematical arguments. godel kinda shook my tree. i am not as certain 1+1=2 as once i was. it works in some reference frames, but, not all. i can see the moon, and i can see my shadow in the light of the moon. i can draw conclusions from that and make predictions. i can also safely predict they will not hold up under all circumstances.

my gripe with dark matter is it apparently does not exist in our solar system. the rotational drag on the sun is consistent with the mass of known orbital bodies. i am more inclined to believe gravity is repulsive at great distances. i also suspect it explains the speed of light, hubbles constant and the cosmic background radiation.

ps. my stellar rate of evolution comment was mainly about the apparent disregard for time dilation effects on objects such as neutron stars.
